Friday New Releases – November 3rd

Can you believe we are in November already.  Christmas is just around the corner and with all the new releases today, what might be on your Christmas list?  I don’t really have anything from these releases that I am dying to have, but there are a couple I will give a listen to.  Not much in the rock world for me, it is all Pop.  The ones I am interested in at least listening to are highlighted in Blue as always.

If you want to buy any of the albums, I have tried to make it easy for you. Click on the link after each album and it will take you to iTunes and you can download the release with just a few clicks.

Tired of the releases for this album so far that feature another artist.  Why do songs today on Pop Radio have to be with someone else.  I don’t get and this is a topic for another time.  I do like “Cold” though.

  • 51-yr3+L5-L._AC_US436_QL65_  Sam Smith – The Thrill of It All – (Capitol Records):  Finally the voice of Sam Smith is back with some new music.  I know my oldest loves him and I have to admit he has a nice voice.  I will give it a spin and see what he has to offer.  The first two promotional songs have been good.

Friday New Releases – December 2nd

As we get closer and closer to Christmas, there will be fewer worth while releases.  However, we aren’t there yet as the Rolling Stones are set to release their new album “Blue & Lonesome”.  This will be tops on my list for today. The others I will check out are highlighted in Blue.

  • cover170x170-32  The Rolling Stones – Blue & Lonesome – (Promotone B.V):  The Stones are going back to their roots and bringing us an old school Stones album and it sounds great from what I have heard so far.  Can’t wait for the rest.

  • cover170x170-40  Night Ranger – 35 Years and a Night in Chicago – (Frontiers Music Srl):  Wow!  35 years of Night Ranger.  I will celebrate by listening to their new live album.  I just picked up their first 3 on vinyl and still love them.
